I did amazing this month. I almost read the same amount of books I read in the last two months together. I read 13 books and 3,741 pages. I completed 7 challenges.

If I wrote a review it is linked in the title, if not, I linked the Goodreads description on the author’s name. The books I read are:

  1. ‘Library of Souls’ by Ransom Riggs
  2. ‘The Reptile Room’ by Lemony Snicket
  3. ‘Where it Ends’ by Marieke Nijkamp
  4. ‘You Were Here’ by Cori McCarthy
  5. ‘Under the Dome’ by Stephen King
  6. ‘Bird Box’ by Josh Malerman
  7. ‘Catacomb’ by Madeline Roux
  8. ‘The Wide Window’ by Lemony Snicket
  9. ‘Wandering Star’ by Romina Russell
  10. ‘Obsidian Butterfly’ by Laurell K. Hamilton
  11. ‘The Girl on the Train’ by Paula Hawkins
  12. ‘A Farewell to Arms’ by Ernest Hemingway
  13. ‘Lilac Girls’ by Martha Hall Kelly

I did 2 read-a-thons this month. The first one, #AYearAThon, took place on the 7th through the 13th and I am so proud of myself. I may have only finished 3 books, but one of them was huge. Here is the link to my wrap-up for that. The second one, #SlayThatSeries, started the day the first ended, and I managed to read 3 books. Here is the review for that. I also made a video wrap-up for both of these, which can be found here.
